LARGO – Pinellas County Housing Authority’s new Pinellas Heights senior community has received the silver award from the National Green Building Standard, or NGBS.

The NGBS certification provides independent, third-party verification that an apartment building is designed and built to achieve high “green” performance in six key areas: site design, resource efficiency, water efficiency, energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality and building operation and maintenance.

“This accomplishment is one more step taken toward meeting PCHA’s strategic goal of implementing green initiatives,” said Debbie Johnson, executive director for PCHA. “Accreditation is a direct result of the hard work and dedication of our developer partner, Norstar Development USA, LP.”

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Housing Finance Authority of Pinellas County, Pinellas County Community Development, city of Largo, Norstar Development USA, LP, RBC Capital Markets, JP Morgan Chase and the Pinellas County Housing Authority provided funding for the $24 million development. The Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta also provided a $1 million Affordable Housing Program grant to the project.

“Congratulations to all PCHA Pinellas Heights partners on successfully completing a beautiful, energy-efficient, and sustainable housing community for low-income seniors” said PCHA’s board Chairman Joseph Triolo.

The Pinellas County Housing Authority is a HUD-designated high performing agency. As the largest housing authority in Pinellas County, PCHA owns and operates more than 1,000 units of non-subsidized affordable rentals, in addition to federally-subsidized rentals and rental subsidies, providing housing opportunities for more than 8,000 county individuals.
